This is actually the 3rd year in a row on that deal.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Hmmm. Ill have to give Jasona ring and see what he says if I get serious about buying some. Why do you say not great bodywork unless crash each track/race day? Wouldnt that be a good thing if it could hold up to multiple crashes? Or are you saying itd be worth it since its buy 1 get 1?

Since it's buy one get one and that you crash so much you don't care if it fits even close to right.

What brand race bodywork?

It ended up looking pretty good after I was done.

I got a set and split it with Grantourin90 last year. They fit great, and crashed damn good considering I had two triple digit crashes, and a fast highside that the bike hit the wall, and It wont require more than VERY minor crack touchups .

The side panel of mine at the top where it meets the frame had one spot that was not "perfect" in shape, but was damn near impossible to tell mounted and snugged to frame.

Did you guys both fit 08 bodywork on 06 bikes?

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

What I figure is that since Hotbodies makes bodywork from 2001 and up, they probably started between 2001 and 2005 making bodywork. Make the current stuff and maybe a generation back. They probably weren't good at what they were doing when they started but got better along the way.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

As soon as the next one of the big 4 comes out with something "groundbreaking". Plus, I want to be first with a new gen that they will run for years, like the 2006 and up GSXR. Too late in the game, imo, to get one now, get a new one and ride the 6 year wave of them all being essentially the same.

There's not a lot of merit in that unless you need to be running a new model for contingency purposes. Consider a new R6 now costs more than what I paid for my 1000 back in 2005. Also a brand new bike will have very few parts available for it, and very little setup data.

$11K for a stock 600
another $4-5K (conservatively) in suspension, bodywork, pipe, brakes, etc

So now you've shelled out $15-16K for a brand new bike that you'll probably not going to go any faster on that a completely setup used race bike that you paid 1/3 the money for.

Never buy the first model year of any motor vehicle brand new.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I don't just want a new track bike, I want the new more competitive bike, that won't be matched for another 1/2 decade. When they (one of the 4) make the next 2006 GSXR I'm getting that one. Hopefully, it won't change for another 1/2 decade and parts will be easy to get and plentiful, plus it will remain competitive. I also want to be the first owner, not the 4th. That will be the first vehicle I own new.

With cars it takes the first 2 years to get the bugs worked out, unless it's an s10/blazer. Then they run the same suspension as a 78-88 gbody car (2wd) or the same crappy front end (4wd) for 20 years. If they started making s10 blazers in 84 and realized by 88 that all the ball joints were bad in short time, wouldn't they fix the front end...nope.

With bikes, not so much as I see it.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

With your record of crashing, I guess you should just stick with what you got... And upgrade from those street tires with no treads that youre riding on.

I have been on take off D211's since CMP. I crashed there, NJMP and Summit since. I don't think I have ever finished a lap on AMA take off's.
